The quintessential zinnia! Fully double and fire engine red with bright yellow centers attracting pollinators from near and far, Benary’s Giant Red blooms are often 4 to 6 inches wide on long, strong stems perfect for cutting. Like all zinnias, Benary’s Giant Red is prolific and their 2+ week vase life is nothing short of impressive. We also appreciate Benary’s Giant Red’s low susceptibility to powdery mildew, making it possible to harvest their copious blooms right up to frost. Zinnias thrive in gardens as well as raised beds and containers & the more you harvest, the more they bloom!

Transplant (recommended): Sow indoors 4 weeks before last frost, keeping soil surface moist until emergence. At Fruition we sow in soil blocks, and a heat mat will help maintain an accurate temperature. If not using soil blocks, transplant into larger containers when seedlings have true leaves (avoid plants becoming root bound).
